When I'm with the family, it's always in a campground. However, I often head out into the wilderness alone with all I need on my back, and I camp wherever there is a space. I typically camp between April and October.
I have a smaller backpack, so 2-3 days is about my limit solo, although when I camp with my family, we'll go for a week or so since we can stow quite a bit in the car.
When I'm alone, camping is a means to get me to somewhere I want to photograph, but when I camp with my family, it's about maximizing the experience for my kids. As such, we'll play in streams, go on day hikes, cook over the campfire, etc.
